Daniel Craig has finally broken his silence and talked publicly about if he will return to play James Bond once again.
“I’d hate to burst the bubble, but no decision has been made at the moment,” Craig told Morning Magic 106.7 in Boston on Tuesday. “There’s a lot of noise out there and nothing official has been confirmed and I’m not, like, holding out for more money or doing anything like that. It’s just all very personal decisions to be made at the moment. I know they’re desperate to get going and I would in theory love to do it, but there is no decision just yet.”
So there you have it. Despite numerous reports that Craig will be returning as 007 for the 25th Bond movie, which was announced in July will be released on November 8, 2019, it sounds like Craig is still working things out.
Craig will be seen next in Steven Soderbergh’s heist movie, “Logan Lucky,” which opens in theaters Friday.
Craig has been playing James Bond since 2006’s “Casino Royale.” His last movie as Bond, 2015’s “Spectre,” grossed over $880 million worldwide. However, leading up to the release of the movie Craig seemed to tire of the role, now famously stating that he’d rather “slit my wrists” than play Bond again.
